ronald reagan uttered that one line. president obama hopes that one exception is the only one. >> that debate. what happened? >> coverager romney had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> it's not the first time i had a bad night. what is important is the fundamental of what this race is about haven't changed. >> karl rove wrote that the first debate will be seen as the decision point in this election. do we make too big a deal out of debates? or does mr. rove have a point? >> we make too big a deal in that it's hard to argue that debates test or reveal aptitudes that are pertinent to the performance of presidential duties. debates are now semiconstitutional events. you cannot become president without participating. clearly, in close elections, '60, '76, 2000, it's plausible to say they caused enough change to be the margin of difference. with regard to this year's, it's too soon to say whether the surge mitt romney got from his debate performance is enough or not. if it is durable, it will be because what happens in debates that matter, they catalyze and inchoate feeling the

the way, as you know, when tip o'neill was the speaker of the house and ronald reagan was the president of the united states, and they worked together on a very important and significant tax reform. we believe that it's time for that again and that you can do that working across the aisle. obviously governor romney, if he becomes president, would hope to have republican majorities in the house and the senate, but you would have to work across the aisle, and we believe it can be done and there are six studies that show it can. >> but the promise that takes precedence and i do want to move on is about not increasing the deficit. you heard robert gibbs talk about big bird and the targeting of big bird by governor romney. coming out of that pbs cited poll showing it's the most trusted public institution and it only takes about 0.01% of the federal budget and not seeing big bird show up. was it a mistake to target him? >> george, it wasn't a targeting. it was a, you know, just pointing to one example. as you know, governor romney would move us toward a balanced budget with a 5% cut

'84, reagan botched the first one. he said he was over trained, overprepared. not quite ready
